Some secrets need to see the light, no matter how painful they are…

And you know that exposing certain secrets can lead to a lot of trouble…

Check out this story from Reddit’s “Am I the A**hole?” page and see if you think this woman was out of line for uncovering a secret about her mother-in-law.

AITA for uncovering my MIL’s secret?

“I 25(f) gave birth to my daughter two months ago and despite my husband (28) telling me he knows I’d never cheat on him I wanted to give our daughter a paternity test

The reason, she has green eyes, me and my husband don’t have green eyes, my parents don’t either and neither do my inlaws no one in my family has them. My husband said it was probably some weird genetic thing but I wanted the test for his peace of mind.

He kept refusing because he trust me but his mother keeps commenting on her eyes, as do the rest of his family who keep making comments about me possibly cheating even my family finds it odd our daughter has green eyes. My husband says to ignore them because he knows I’d never cheat but I finally had enough of his families comments and told him I wanted the test.

He only agreed to get me to calm down and well, our daughter is his but FIL isn’t my husband’s father. My in laws have been married for decades so the idea that my MIL cheated on FIL never crossed either of our minds. My husband wants to confront his mother but I’m telling him to wait, that yes she’s a liar and a hypocrite but we need to think this through.

Yes I agree my FIL should know but we’re both tired from taking care of a newborn, we’ve found out something shocking and were not thinking rationally, he wants to tell his father and so do I but the fall out will be apocalyptic. I just wanted to give him peace of mind and instead I started the end of his parents marriage and possibly blew up his family.

AITA for forcing a DNA test and finding out about this cna of worms?”
